FOREST FIRE REPORT 



Prevention is one of the most important phases of all 
fire effort. This is particularly true of forest fire con- 
trol Avork. Preventing- forest fires preserves valuable 
forest g-rowth and other property, conserves man power 
and permits their use in productive channels, saves tax- 
payers' money and conserves fire fighting equipment. 

The prevention of forest fires is the most important 
and difficult part of the work of your forest fire warden 
who heads a local organization set up primarily for the 
security of your community's forest property. Appoint- 
ed by the State Forester, upon recommendation of the 
Selectmen, he is charged by law with the responsibility 
of local administration of forest fire laws, fire prevention 
and suppression. In his work he is aided by deputy fire 
wardens who. in emergency, may assume his power and 
authority. The warden is guided in his work by instruc- 
tions received from the State Forester and by the Dis- 
trict Fire Chief who represents the State Forester. 

The importance and value of the work of the forest 
fire warden and his deputies is. perhaps, best appreciat- 
ed during hazardous periods when lire danger is great- 
est. The public, however, looks to him at all times for 
speedy and economical suppression of going fires. 

The careless smoker fails to properly extinguish his 
cigar, cigarette or pipe ashes or thoughtlessly throws 
them from the car window ; the debris burner fails or 
refuses to consult the warden, as the law requires when 
the ground is not covered with snow, before attempting 
to burn ; campers fail to properly extinguish their fires 
or frequently build fires when conditions are unfavor- 
able. 

The elimination of human causes from the forest fire 
problem is the answer. This is not as difficult of ac- 
complishment as it might appear at first glance. Let 
each one wdio reads this —

For the third year, it has l)ecome necessary to organ- 
ize a fifth classroom after the beginning of school, in or- 
der to relieve overcrowding. The building was designed 
for four classrooms, two grades or about 36 pupils in a 
room. When the enrollment in any classroom exceeds 
this, another room may well be provided, especially in 
the case of the primary room, where the beginners need 
an unusual amount of individual attention. It would 
seem to be a wise policy to plan on five teachers regular- 
ly, as at least one combination of grades is apt to have an 
excessive enrollment.

With state and federal cooperation, the school lunch 
program has lieen resumed in Barrington, sponsored lo- 
cal)}" h}' the Parent Teachers Association. X'aluable 
e {ui])nient. including a refrigerator, has been secured 
through the g'overnment's non-food assistance grant. 
The government also provides a certain share of each 
standard meal served. sup]:)lementing the moderate 
UKHmt charged the pupils. Surplus agricultural commo- 
amount charged the pupils. Surplus agricultural commo- 
niinistration. The electric stove has been moved to a 
place near the sink, and the cupboards, including some 
new facilities, have been grouped near by. The PTA 
has furnished the services of Mrs. Kenneth Treble, who 
spends several hours each day in the lunch room, assis- 
ted l^y different jxirents. The food is served in the 
classrooms, an arrangement that seems to work ver}" 
satisfactorily. It is intended to run the school lunch for 
13 weeks during the cold weather. A partition, of the 
same classification as the rest of the building, should se- 
parate the lunchroom from the additional classroom. 

Besides examining the children and contacting the 
homes in regard to health measures, the school nurse, 
Miss Myrtle V. Fletcher, arranged a "Toxoid" clinic for 
dijihtheria immunization held June 6 at which 27 school 
cliildren and 7 pre-school children received this inval- 
ual)le pre\enti\-e measure. 

House l-)ill Xo. 12 embodies the state board of educa- 
tion's plan for increasing support to the schools. The 
legislative interim commission will also have recom- 
mendations, the content of which is not \-et Avholly re- 
vealed. Under the former plan, the state aid to Bar- 
ringtcJn for the current }"ear would have been $12,863, in- 
stead of $5,117.97 as actually received. The revenue 
would come from sources available to the state, rather 
than local real estate. Xew llam])shire is now the onh" 
state in the L"nion that does not give state aid for high

school costs, and is low on the hst in the proportion of 
school costs ]jaid ])y the state. The plan calls for an aj)- 
propriation of $2,080,000, to be expended 55% for equal- 
ization, at the rate of $75 per elementary pupil and $100 
per high school pupil, beginning at 60 cents on SlOO of 
equalized valuation for schot)l costs, and extending to a 
maximum of $10,000 (instead of $6,000 as at present). 
The rest of the state aid, 45% of the appropriation, 
would be in the form of general aid, granted to all com- 
munities, on the basis of pupil membership, at a rate of 
not over $v37.50 per elementary pupil and $50 per high 
school pupil. The cost of administering this increased 
aid would be no more than at present, since the details 
of the budget would be left more to the discretion of the 
local school authorities. As drastic increases in teach- 
er's salaries must be made in most places in order to 
keep any teacher's at all, the districts are g'oing to need 
the increased help provided by this plan. However, 
the aid may also he spent for any other school purpose, 
including payment for our building. The proposed law 
also provides that should the appropriation be insufficient 
for the aid contemplated, the pro-rata deduction would 
operate first on the general aid rather than on the equal- 
ization, so that the places haAing the most need would l^e 
the last to l)e deprived of the fuU benefits. 

Dr. Edgar Fuller has become the new Commissioner 
of Education in New Hampshire. Dr. Fuller has had 
training in the law as well as education. He has had ex- 
perience as a superintendent of schools, professor of 
education at Harvard, and director of aeronautics educa- 
tion for the federal government, \^'ith his encourage- 
ment, lay professional groups have been organized to 
study various phases of educational policy. ^Ir. Ro}' \'. 
Swain was a member of the Strafford Count}' group, and 
also the sub-committee which met in Rochester for more 
intensive discussion. A New Hampshire School Boards

Association has also been org-anized, which has held a 
well-attended meeting at the State House. 

THE SCHOOL CALENDAR 

The SchiMil Calendar, as adopted by the school board, 
provides for schools to be in session 180 days, Avhich is 
generally accepted standard in well-regulated school dis- 
tricts. From this total are deducted the days of official 
state institutes, attended by the teachers. These in- 
clude the count}' or regional i nstitute, and (in the 
smaller districts) the rural institute, but not the state 
conventicju. which is a voluntary organization. As the 
school }ear can not be shortened beyond the recjuired li- 
mit except by permission of the State Board of Educa- 
tion, any excess of no-school days is liable to prolong; 
school in June. The calendar as arranged is designed to 
secure for the district the services of the teachers, trans- 
porters, and other employees of the district for the full 
term for which the}' are employed.
